Cathay 777-367 Delivery

Fri Apr 22, 2005 11:34 am

I heard 'Cathay 3337' calling Vancouver center on 134.8 at about 1300 Pacific time today, April 21. I looked the flight up on Flytecomm and it showed it as a 777-300 routing Everett Wash. to Hong Kong. Could this be the delivery flight of their final 777-367, B-HNP?

The arrivals schedule for today (4/22) at the HKG Airport website also shows CX3337 arriving from Everett at an estimated local time of 17:26 (GMT+8).

Looks like a delivery flight to me.

773A. It is the 89th operational aircraft at CX and fitted with the updated New Regional Biz Class onboard.

Thanks for the info guys. I'll be watching for B-HNP's first photo on A.net.

367 eh? I've noticed these variant designations in the photo library. How do you keep track of the difference between a 367 and a 368 etc? What exactly is the difference?

Those numbers are the customer codes from Boeing. Cathay has number 67, so all aircraft that are delivered to CX from Boeing have 67 at the end. 68 is Saudi Arabian.

Thanks for that. One further question on this subject: if a 772 was delivered to, say, China Airlines it would be a 777-209. If then, it was sold second hand to, say, Icelandair, would it still be a 777-209 since the product was originally made for China Airlines, or would it change to being a 777-208?

No, the original designation stays, regardless of who is flying the aircraft. For instance, when VS bought the order of 744s originally destined for AZ, they kept the -43 suffix rather than the -1R that VS use.

Identical in every way as the've been configured to VS's specifications, but they still carry separate designators.

So is this more of a bookkeeping thing for Boeing's sale department?

To further illustrate the point LH423 was making, if you look at this example,, look over to the column titled "ln" and scan down to ln listing 17, you will notice that the 777-236 that started it's life as N702BA changed hands several times and is currently with Varig of Brazil. Through the entire sequence of changes, the original owner's code [BA] of 777-236 was retained. Hope this helps.

Just to correct the very first post, this is not our final 777-367. We have one more on order due for next year, which will be B-HNQ. Hopefully more will be ordered.

Thanks for the update CXflyboy. I was going by the information on www.planemad.net/Airline/HK/Cathay_Pacific_Airways_(CX_CPA)/Fleet.htm that said it was the last 777-300 for your airline. They must not be aware that there is one more to come.

CX flyboy: -

Any news on any 'shopping list' for CX this year? They are aiming for 6-8 new aircraft per year, is that still going to happen?

Happy flying
